I was raised in a small town in northeast Kansas. There were 27 students in my class from K-12th grade. I attended Kansas State University following high school, and Baker University for my Masters.
Bachelor of Arts from Kansas State University
Master of Arts from Baker University
This is my seventh year of teaching at AMS, and my twelfth in Andover Schools. Although my current position is 8th Grade Language Arts, I've taught all grade levels from 3-12th grade. I've taught for 32 years in several school districts across the state, and I believe Andover is the best!
Before teaching at AMS, I taught 4th grade at Cottonwood. I have taught in Abilene, McPherson, and Garden City as well. This is my 35th year in the profession.
My own children are now adults. My son is 36 and my daughter is 32. I am blessed with tone grandchild, Avy, who is 9 years old. My extended family is huge and amazing. I have over 100 nieces and nephews/great nieces and nephews.
Spending time with my family and friends is my very favorite way to spend my time outside of school I also love to read,
